The Greek region of Epirus has the highest youth unemployment rate in Europe. Given Greece’s ongoing economic and debt crisis, their future appears bleak.
Unemployment in the eurozone in November fell unexpectedly to its lowest rate in more than 10 years. But youth unemployment in Italy, Spain and Greece remains above 30 percent.
Greeks have long viewed the German finance minister as a symbol of failed austerity policies. But Athens is by no means joyful now that Wolfgang Schäuble is leaving after eight years in office, says Jannis Papadimitriou.
Unemployment in the eurozone remained unchanged in August underlining Europe's steady economic recovery. Youth unemployment nonetheless remains high in many countries.
Greek Prime Minister Tsipras has said his country is no longer in danger of Grexiting - leaving the EU - and is seeing an inward investment boom. He said he is hopeful after nine years of recession, but questions remain.
